What is cybersecurity risk assessment?
A cyber security risk assessment is the process of identifying, analyzing, and evaluating risk.
By choosing cyber security controls that are appropriate for the risks your organization faces, you can help ensure that they are implemented. Without a risk assessment to guide your cyber security decisions, you risk wasting time, effort, and money.
It makes little sense to take precautions to protect your organization against occurrences that are unlikely to happen or won't have an impact.
